If you or anybody you know has missing teeth, they do not have to just learn to live with them. There is a tried, tested and reliable solution available to them called dental implants. This extremely clever method produces replacement teeth that look, feel and behave just like a natural and healthy tooth would. You have the opportunity to restore your natural smile to the best it can be. So here are a few facts about dental implants.
They are Super Strong
At quality dentists such as Hertford Dental Implants, the artificial root is made of one of the world’s strongest metals – titanium, which is carefully implanted into your jaw bone. To strengthen it even further, the bone tissue naturally wraps itself around this new artificial root, creating new bone tissue and a very strong bond onto which the dentist can attach replacement teeth.
They Protect Healthy Bone
Empty spaces in your mouth can cause health issues, such as the loss and deterioration of segments of jawbone. These spaces need to be supporting a tooth to continue growing. Dental implants behave like this tooth and so stimulate the bone tissue to grow and prevent bone loss.
Cavities are History
Though you will need to take good care of your dental implants, you will not be able to get cavities in the replacement teeth – they simply cannot occur.
Eat, Drink and Speak Without Worry
Dental implants remove any issues with biting, chewing or clear speech so you will be able to eat all of your favourite foods and talk without any worry about slippage or pain. Go on, take a big bite of that apple!
No Sunken Look
In some cases, missing teeth can cause the face to sag. Dental implants allow you to retain your natural full and healthy face shape.
Built to Last a Lifetime
Dental implants have been around for a long time. Technology has evolved to make the process more streamlined and convenient, but the age of the treatment means we know we are able to rely on the process as we have seen how long it can last repeatedly. If cared for properly, your dental implants will last a lifetime.
